PURPOSE: Ploys – Creative Concepts in Disguise is an environmentally focussed Profit for Purpose business and we stand for sustainability and upcycling based on the principles of a circular economy. Creating new unique one-off designer bags and purses made out of recycled plastics and PVC from punctured pool inflatables and air matresses, which cannot be recycled in mainstream.
REUSE-REDUCE: All our products are made from recycled plastic and PVC through what we call a closed loop cycle. PVC takes up to 1000 years to disintegrate into a microplastic which re-enters our oceans and food life cycle. This has to stop. Since starting PLOYS in January 2020 we have saved approximately 100kg of discarded PVC, instead of this going into landfill! That’s a whole lot of Pool Inflatable, knowing that it’s a very light material and we would like to thank the community and our customers for your support to achieve this!
FUTURE: We recognise the need to safeguard our earth & future and combine this mission with our love for functionality and design, creating unique durable products from waste based on it‘s original form. We have a vision to do no harm to the environment and support our planet by seeking solutions to the plastic waste crisis. We also focus on employment and work experience opportunities to communities. Feel free to contact us about this program.
